Indian weddings are beautiful and festive. When you are getting married in Melbourne, it’s important to incorporate various aspects of the Indian culture into your ceremony and reception if this is part of your heritage. We can help you find the best songs for weddings and even make recommendations on the best venue choices. Here are some Melbourne Indian Wedding Ideas and Popular Venue Choices.




Indian Wedding Ideas

You may want to bring in the Indian culture in a variety of different ways. Be sure to choose your wedding colors in advance to ensure that the venue and your flowers all coordinates beautifully.

Red Dress

You may decide to go with a traditional red Indian wedding dress. You may also decide to go with white and use red in various other ways, such as using a red sash or wearing red shoes.

Gold Elephants

Elephants are a sign of good luck. You can find various ways to incorporate lucky golden elephants throughout your wedding, including finding place card holders to show everyone where they need to sit at your reception.

Henna & Mehndi

It is traditional to have tattoos placed on your hands and feet for your wedding day. You may want to consider having your wedding at a day spa that has someone experienced in henna tattoos in order to help you. It will also ensure that nothing rubs off between the time that it’s done and the time that you walk down the aisle.

Wedding Dessert

Cakes and cake pops are quite popular. These can be themed for your Indian wedding. Work closely with your baker to have pink, turquoise, purple, and other fondant’s used. The same henna designs on your hands can also be incorporated into the cake.
